Boys' Preview For BAA Invitational Scholastic Mile

On Monday, more than 30,000 runners will make their way from Hopkinton to Copley Square for the 122nd edition of the Boston Marathon. As part of the pre-Marathon festivities two days earlier, two high school athletes from each of the seven towns and cities along the 26-2-mile route will compete in the BAA Invitational Scholastic Mile. Returning this year with hopes of coming out on top is the 2017 runner-up, Andrew Mah of Newton North. In last year's race, Mah was less than two seconds behind winner Benjamin Matejka with his time of 4:29.6. This year's field includes a plethora of runners that have dipped under 4:30 in their careers. Who will reign supreme at this Saturday's event? Here's a list of some of the top competitors, plus the remaining entries that will grace the starting line on Boylston Street.
